Default Brake system bleed?

I just did ss brake lines all around, and now i can't get all the air out of my brake lines. Where should/can I take my car to have the entire brake system bled? I'm on the phone with power subaru now, but would prefer a cheaper option. '05 wrx

You can't do it yourself? Go to the autoparts store and buy some speed bleeders. The find out the correct bleed order from the service manual and replicate. The speedbleeder screws make it easy by not allowing air to go back into the system. It becomes a one person job. Did you let the reservoir run dry?

they have those little one man bleeders at autozone, just a plastic bottle with a hose.



Just keep pumping fluid into it untill the bottle fills, then pour it into the reservoir. Kepp cycling it until there's no air bubbles.

sort of off topic, but did you have any troubles disconnecting the hard brake lines from the stock rubber flexible brake line?

I just did pads and tried to do SS brake lines on my '04 rex but the connection at this point was really freakin stuck on there. stripped the bolt on the hard line side down to practically nothing. Don't know how that sucka is going to come off

Mine was on there like crazy too. I started to strip it and then realized I was using the wrong tool for the job. go get some high quality flair nut wrenches and try those.

I say high quality cause I bought some Checker Parts cheapo ones and they expanded and fully stripped the nut. My solution to getting a striiped unit off? Vice grips. Lock those suckers on there and turn. Job done.

Yeah, I tried using C-clamps for the stripped bolt. I got it so tight on there that the clamp was flexing backwards. Still nothing. I'm thinking I need some sort of machine shop to remove that mutha *****a.

Side note: any ideas how much it cost to have the hard brake lines replaced throughout the car?
